Over 100 student delegates from three AMSI schools
Academia Management Solutions International (AMSI) students were active participants at the 3rd annual Harvard Model Congress held from 22nd – 24th January 2014 at the American University Dubai. Over 100 student delegates from all AMSI schools attended this prestigious event.
Organised by Harvard College Model Congress Middle East, a student organization at Harvard University, the event aims to hone the leadership skills of their students whilst increasing their awareness on global social and political issues. It is one of the largest conferences of its kind in the Middle East.
The congress conducted an intense three-day long government simulation conference, where students could represent renowned international committees like the UN Security Council, Arab League, African Union, and various US Congress Committees, and tackle current global issues by devising intuitive remedial measures and pass resolutions through parliamentary-style debating.
The AMSI student delegates are a part of the MUN Club, and have, in the past two years, won several awards including ‘best delegation’, ‘Honourable Distinction’, and ‘Outstanding Delegation’ awards.
